Title 40, Chapter 13, Section 59
(a) The traffic violations bureau of the court shall record on the prescribed form, as set out in Code Section 40-13-52, the driving record of the defendant. If there is no previous record of the driver's history, the citation appearing on the original citation and complaint shall be entered on the driver's traffic offense card; and each traffic offense thereafter shall be entered thereon, with the disposition thereof, up to a period of four years.
(b) All the pending cases which appear on the citation and complaint
issued by the arresting officer, as provided for in this article,
shall be filed at the cashier's desk in the traffic violations
bureau of the court and shall be retained there up until 72 hours,
or such other period of time as the judge shall fix by order, prior
to the time the case is set for trial in the court. If cash bond is
posted according to the schedules prescribed by order of the judge
at any time up to 72 hours, or such other period of time as the
judge shall fix by order, prior to the date of the court appearance,
as specified in the citation and complaint, the same shall be
entered on the driver's traffic offense card and an entry shall be
made thereon that the driver has posted a cash bond.
(c) Within 72 hours after the date set for a hearing in the court on
the citation and complaint given, where the defendant has posted a
cash bond and has failed to appear for the hearing, the court shall
enter an order that the cash bond has been forfeited in accordance
with this article. Such order shall be recorded on the back of the
citation and complaint which is maintained in the traffic violations
bureau of the court and shall also be recorded on the defendant's
traffic offense card.
